If you are interested in sponsoring a piece of music on the program, please talk with your son/daughter about which piece you would like to sponsor.  The average cost of Symphonic Band music is $75; Wind Ensemble music is $100.  Just email me if you are interested in this TAX DEDUCTABLE way to contribute to the band and provide a lasting legacy for your child.  If I know in time, I’ll add your name to our program.  Of course you can also sponsor a work after the concert.  Sponsor names are printed on the archive parts that remain in our library.

Both the Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble will be PROFESSIONALLY RECORDED during the concert.  CDs and DVDs will be available for purchase. 

It’s going to be another great night of music at Athens Drive!  I look forward to seeing you Thursday evening!


P.S. All students in CONCERT BAND and students in MARCHING BAND who are not in our concert ensembles are enthusiastically invited to attend!  We really appreciate your support!  Concert Band students will receive extra credit for attending as well!
